The Michigan Token and Medal Society is pleased to announce that they will be celebrating 50 years of service to the numismatic community on Friday, November 27th at the Michigan State Numismatic Society’s Convention in Warren, Michigan. There will be a dinner, followed by awards, an auction, and lots of other activities. 

At this time, we are offering the following items for sale in preparation for the celebration. Numismatic items include wooden nickels which are double-sided with special designs for our 50th, and the elongated half dollars are rolled with a special design by Ray Dillard, Michigan’s specialty elongater! In addition, the 50th anniversary medals are coming from SilverTowne with whatever information you desire on the back, with a standard 50th anniversary logo on the front of the medal. All prices are listed below. Navy blue t-shirts and polo shirts are also available with the same design as the wooden nickels, created by a Mich-TAMS member. 

With such a special occasion, you won’t want to delay in ordering these items if you want them for your collection! Any questions, please call Doug Jennings at 734-279-1728 or email, [or write to his postal address] 2616 Summerfield Rd., Petersburg, MI 49270.
